My name is Grand, Saab has been my favorite brand since I was in college. I have had a number of 900s and am happy to be back in the game! Stumbled on this 900se convertible and am so happy to have it. Doing some small things now, redoing the rear bumper now. It’s my first convertible!

Georgeus car Grand! I have a 93 convertible also in Platana Grey. How did you redo the rear bumper? It looks great. Are you planning to replace the silver trim in the center of the bumper? If so with what?

I sanded the bumper with 400 grit sand paper to prep it and used SEM bumper paint Charcoal Metallic. It’s a good match. I do 3 coats and am happy given it’s a 30 yr old car! I am waiting for some chrome strip I ordered from amazon. Will post some pics when done.

Fantastic car... Platana grey SE is my second favorite 900!
What’s your favorite? Would love to have a Monte Carlo yellow but those are hard to find at a reasonable price. I almost had a Lynx yellow 08 9-3 but it got sold, I think this car will be more fun in the long run!

Please post link to that Amazon page. I need those as well...

I know you weren't asking me but the red convertible is pretty sweet. Saab must've thought so too since it's on the "Saab Forever" poster: SAAB Poster 0221424 | eEuroparts.com®

'86 SPG is probably my favorite c900. There were a bunch of great c900s over the years, but I guess I just like grey ones the best. ;)
